Women golf instruction

Women golfers ARE different.

Although most golf teachers (note the word 'teachers', which refers to 95% of the golfing population of the world!) believe that a woman must simply make a more genteel version of a man's swing, usually with pastel pink, baby blue or passion purple, ultra-light clubs, preferably woods (women are not strong enough to hit their irons effectively), this is simply not true.

If only women would :
  • Use short, wide, unfussy backswings
  • Choke down on the irons for crisper shots
  • Have very basic chip- and pitch-shot swings
  • Avoid their drivers and perhaps even their 3-irons
Women golfers of the world arise - you do not have to settle for 50-yard drives and permanently topped pitch shots - Your simply hace to learn how.
